Posted by Art Dept in : A Curriculum for Excellence, S4 , add a comment

A lovely letter has been received from Oxfam after the money raised from the Performance Show was donated. I think the opening paragraph says it all…

A great big thank you to staff and students involved in the Japanese fashion show, which you organised at school and raised a fantastic £300 for Oxfam’s work throughout the world….Thank you all for all your time and effort everyone put into this show.

Well done everyone!

2011 Performance Show November 10, 2011

Posted by Art Dept in : A Curriculum for Excellence, S4 , add a comment

A massive ‘Well Done’ to all those who took part in this year’s Performance Show. The theme of this year’s show was Japan, with all monies raised being sent to the Japanese disaster relief funds set up after the earthquake and tsunami. As usual, our pupils worked extremely hard and despite some knocking of knees just before they were due to walk down the catwalk, the event went brilliantly!

If you took part, whether it was in creating the powerpoints for the backdrops, modelling, designing, working on the promotions, photography, videoing, sound, lighting, the newsdesk…the list is long…YOU SHOULD ALL BE VERY PROUD OF YOURSELVES!

Many thanks once again to all the staff involved – as ever, the Art & Design staff, Mr Gallagher and Ms Watson, but also to Mr Lynch, Mrs Bonnar, Mr Waugh, Ms McLeod, Mrs McSherry…and who could forget Mr Dalrymple and Mr Burns!

If we’ve missed anyone…ooops – sorry! It wasn’t meant :-)

Magic Memories June 27, 2009

Posted by Art Dept in : A Curriculum for Excellence, Exhibitions, S2 , add a comment

Recently, all S2 pupils have been taking part in our fantastic ‘Magic Memories’ project.

Pupils have been exploring Homecoming Scotland themes of what Musselburgh and Scotland means to them and their families, and what their Magic Memories are, and turning them into artwork and prose.

The project, which fits in well with a A Curriculum for Excellence, is the fruit of a lot of hard work by pupils, staff and the community. In English, pupils were asked to interview either members of their families or members of the community. In Art & Design, pupils worked with two great textile artists, Saskia Gavin and Alison Mountain. Working with the artists, pupils learnt how to work with felt and they each created a piece based on what Musselburgh mean to them.

With help from both Homecoming Scotland and the Community Council, work from this project has led to an exhibition for the Musselburgh on the Fringes Festival.  The Magic Memories exhibition is free and runs from 29 June to 28 August and the work is displayed in business windows around Musselburgh. The route starts in North High Street and takes in Musselburgh High Street and Newbigging.

For further information and photos (of course!), check out our Magic Memories page under A Curriculum for Excellence.
